After many months of work this project is out in the wild :-)

This EP is a collection of Amiga power synth tunes for your summer / winter dancin' and headphone nodding times!! For the geeks: the tunes here were created in the MOD format for unexpaded Amiga 500 then mixed & engineered in the analogue domain from 2" tape.

The above USB is only available at shows and contains a ton of old cTrix backlog. That's about 7 hours of music and a whole load of video plus software, tutorials and virtual disk files! Did I mention SAV files for LSDJ?!

A very limited edition cassette of Chill electronic tracks (Side A, some chip) and Amiga party (Side B) was also floating around but now
gone !!

Quick FAQ!!


Will you add more tunes and stuff to this website?

YES! I do lots of stuff - like help run music workshops and have made video tutorials / written guides. I've also coded software and made patches for tools. At some point I'll pull them all together, fix some mistakes and put them here! I have also written a handy Protracker guide (which needs updatiing). You can find it here.


More info coming soon... it will be on this page with other stuff.
